This is the ideal book for anyone interested in the world around them. 99% Invisible city delves into the fascinating design of the minutiae of the built environment we find ourselves surrounded by. Exploring the origins and stories behind everything from power grids and fire escapes to drinking fountains and street signs.

Described by one critic as 'not a book, but a pair of magic glasses that transform the mundane city around you into a vibrant museum of human ingenuity.' each chapter is 2-5 pages long giving you enough information to pique your curiosity, and cause you to start noticing the things around you that you may have over looked until now. 

We've been fans of the 99% invisible podcast since it started almost 10 years ago, and the book lives up to the excellent, highly idiosyncratic standard of the podcast but with added illustration.
